Religion in Global Civil Society

Abdullahi A. An‐Na'im

This essay questions whether economic globalization and global civil society work against each other or in concert. Examining Islamic fundamentalism, Hindu nationalism, and Liberation Theology, it proposes that there are possibilities of synergy and mediation between the two: the exclusivity and intolerance of some religious communities can be moderated by the impact of economic globalization, while economic globalization’s inattentiveness to social justice can be redressed through the moral guidance of religion.

Keywords:   economic globalization, Islamic fundamentalism, Hindu nationalism, liberation theology
